In a league of their own. The Great American Speaker Company joins forces with the greatest advancement in home theatre. Your movies and music will never be the same. Klipsch Dolby Atmos® enabled elevation speakers effortlessly adds the Dolby Atmos experience to your current floorstanding or bookshelf speaker system. Klipsch signature controlled directivity effectively bounces sound off your ceiling down to the listening area for an aerial, lifelike experience. Enhance your home theater system with the incredible, overhead sound effects of the Klipsch RP-500SA Dolby Atmos® speaker. By leveraging Klipsch proprietary horn-loaded controlled directivity technology, the RP-500SA bounces sound off the ceiling to create an astonishing, immersive listening experience. The Reference Premiere 500SA can also be utilized as an on-wall elevation or surround speaker via its easy-to-use keyhole mounting system – delivering the perfect angle for enhanced sound effects.

NEW HORN AND GRILLE

Klipsch redesigned the Tractrix® horn from a 60×90 horn to a 90×90 horn for a wider dispersion area. This square horn mouth is paired with a circular horn throat for enhanced soundstaging, while maintaining the dynamic, powerful sound of a Klipsch speaker. Strong, flexible grilles magnetically detach revealing a clean baffle. Unlike the Reference II series, the magnets have been embedded within the baffle for superior high frequency diffraction reduction.

SOUND FROM ABOUT AND ALL AROUND

To put it simply, Dolby Atmos® is the greatest advancement in home and cinema audio since surround sound. Sound editors now have the ability to pinpoint a single sound and move it around, above and through the listener. Klipsch’s acclaimed controlled directivity is the ideal choice for delivering this new, immersive listening experience.

DOLBY ATMOS

To put it simply, Dolby Atmos® is the greatest advancement in home and cinema audio since surround sound. The addition of elevation speakers reflects sound from the ceiling to put sound anywhere in your room – making you feel like you’re truly in the middle of the action.

ELEVATE AND SURROUND

In additional to delivering overhead sound effects as a Dolby Atmos speaker topper, The RP-500SA is designed to be wall-mounted as a front, rear or side elevation speaker – or as a versatile side or rear surround sound speaker. A pre-configured switchable crossover setting makes the transition easy from Dolby Atmos to surround sound. The keyhole mounting system makes it easy to add these incredible sound effects to your home theater system for a true cinema-grade listening experience.

TECHNOLOGY

HYBRID TRACTRIX® HORN TECHNOLOGY

Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® horn-loaded technology ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-500SA is aimed directly at the listener and reduces unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls – meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.

HORN ANATOMY

Klipsch Reference Premiere series speakers feature a compressed molded silicon face thats matted to the 90×90 Tractrix horn to reduces horn resonance for a smoother frequency response. Klipsch computer modeled phase plugs acts as a mechanical filter to further ensure a smooth, flat frequency response while protecting the tweeter from damage.

ALL-NEW VENTED TWEETER

A vented tweeter design reduces standing waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency reproduction. The titanium tweeter diaphragm’s light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of aluminum, polymer or silk tweeters. Klipsch award-winning Linear Travel Suspension technology leverages a piston motion of the titanium diaphragm that lowers distortion and delivers real-to-life sound. A ceramic magnet housing provides premium performance, Klipsch Reference Premiere tweeters set the standard in acoustic reproduction.

CERAMETALLIC™ WOOFERS

Klipsch Proprietary Cerametallic™ woofers are the RP-500SA speaker’s signature statement for both sound and aesthetics. This extremely light, rigid materials holds its shape while being able to deliver lower frequencies with maximum efficiency.

WOOFER ANATOMY

Klipsch Cerametallic™ cones are matted to a dual-layer, copper-wound voice coil for exceptional conductivity. Reference Premiere woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that’s secured to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion, and matched to our horn-loaded tweeters for optimal acoustic execution.

SWITCHABLE CROSSOVER

The RP-500SA features a switchable crossover that changes between Atmos and Surround speaker modes, for optimized performance as a Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker or a wall mounted side or rear surround.

FINISHED TO PERFECTION

The RP-500SA Dolby Atmos speaker’s ebony finish boasts a satin painted baffle with a scratch resistant design for an elegant audio solution to your home theater system. Strong, flexible, magnetic grilles provide protection and a sleek aesthetic to compliment your home’s decor.

High Def Digest Logo Black

What more can be said about the Klipsch Reference Premiere [Dolby Atmos enabled] Series? They play loud; they play heavy bass, they play screaming highs. They are delicate and nuanced. They are bombastic and brutish. They will turn your listening environment into a room that sounds almost as good as a commercial Dolby Atmos auditorium… And you won’t have to drill holes to do it.
